Philip Dalidakis beaten by his own hubris

Daniel Andrews’ Minister for Innovation Philip Dalidakis has been left red faced by his own hubris.

In October 2015, Dalidakis rushed out to the media to boast that he had personally stolen Australia’s biggest start-up tech conference from Sydney.

However it has now emerged that even after throwing $1million of taxpayers’ money at his push to steal the conference from Sydney, the conference will be held in Randwick, NSW.
